Sitting on an airplane with nothing better to do is the perfect time to treat your skin to a mini facial, and Ashley Benson knows it.
The former Pretty Little Liars star used her time in the sky to spot treat some pimples, and we applaud her for not caring at all about showing off her skincare routine in public. She posted a photo on Instagram with a few pink spot treatment dots on her face with the caption, "pimple cream ✔️."
Treating her blemishes while in the air is a regular occurrence for Ashley, who has been known to post her fair share of zit-cream selfies. "I had just come back from Milan and I needed to put zit cream everywhere because it was a long flight," she told Teen Vogue last year after she posted a skincare shot from 20,000 feet. "I thought I might as well show that everybody gets acne and it’s nothing to hide. I never really do it for any specific reason. Sometimes I just get breakouts and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ll show that I have acne today!” I’m not shy about that stuff. I think it’s really important for fans to know that everybody deals with it and you’re not alone, and you’re completely normal."
Her go-to product? Differin, an over the counter Retinoid treatment. "It’s constantly working and it also helps to prevent acne," she said. "With spot treatments, it can treat the pimple, but it doesn’t prevent it from coming back. Especially since I’m always working and have a lot of makeup on all the time and travel — just being stressed in general — I tend to break out in those situations. It’s been cool to find a different product that doesn’t dry my skin out and still helps my skin stay clear. It’s been fun to experiment with it."
